Responding to the junior doctors full walk out, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive, NHS Employers said:
"Employers recognise the strongly held concerns of doctors in training, but there is no justification for refusing to care for the sickest patients in the NHS. Trusts are working hard to ensure the safety of their services during the strike days, but they tell us that this unprecedented industrial action carries real risk'.
"The contract which is now being implemented reflects agreement to the overwhelming majority of proposals made by the BMA during our talks with them between November and February. Even with the outstanding issue of enhanced payment on Saturdays, we have ensured that the doctors who work them most frequently will receive increased rates of pay."
